Andrew woke up in the middle of the night sweating. He had nightmares about snow rushing down a mountain. It looked like a white cloud of death. It was rushing towards him. His brother was screaming. Then he woke up. He thought if it was not a random coincidence. If it was going to happen. He shrugged off the idea. He saw his brother sleeping peacefully beside him. He closed his eyes and went back to sleep.
The next day he woke up because the annoying sound his alarm clock was making. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t ignore the unpleasant sound. Andrew dragged himself out of bed. It was 5:00 in the morning. Andrew’s mom said”Andrew! I made pancakes!” As soon as Andrew heard that, he rushed down the stairs. He loved pancakes! A moment later, he saw Ryan running down the stairs behind him.
After eating a couple of tasty pancakes covered with chocolate syrup, Andrew went outside to play with Jake and Ivan, his best friends. They had a fun time throwing snowballs at each other, Andrew went back inside. His family was going skiing today.
Andrew’s gut had a bad feeling about this.The rusty old ski lift brought them up the mountain. Ryan shouted, “Last one down is a rotten egg!”Ryan raced down the mountain with Andrew close behind. As he skied down the mountain after Ryan, he saw cracks in the snow’s surface. They grew bigger, and then the snow broke apart. The snow rushed down the mountain super quick. He had to rapidly swim up to breath. He saw a tree. He grabbed on it a like his life depended on it. Unfortunately, the snow rushed above him. His only choice was to let go. Which was exactly what he did.
Once he got back to the surface, he saw Ryan skiing down the mountain faster than ever before. However, the avalanche was faster. Therefore, it enveloped Ryan. Once Andrew saw Ryan disappear into the avalanche, Andrew swam faster than ever before. He kept an eye Ryan, who is now thrashing around wildly. Sadly, the snow was quickly dragging him below the snow. First, his chest sunk below the snow, then his arms and finally his head. Andrew then kept an eye on the area of snow were he sunk. Once he got there, he took a deep breath, then dived down under the snow, trying to find Ryan.
Andrew swam left, right, up and down trying to find Ryan, when finally he gave up, he felt a warm, smooth, domed-shaped surface. Without thinking, he dug the snow around the brown, round surface. Then he dug out Ryan. He yelled, “what is going on!”. He didn’t answer. Because the avalanche stopped and the snow hardened around him.,
Andrew dug an air pocket around his face to breath. Ryan did the same. They grew icicles on their noses as they waited for rescue, which would come in an hour. Andrew woke up and saw a person with a shovel and a dog. He carried him and Ryan into an ambulance. Once they got to the hospital, the doctor gave him hot choco and Andrew asked him if his dad and mom still were alive. The doctor said they died. Andrew screamed NOOOO! He was very sad, angry and disappointed. When he recovered, he walked over his village, now a cloud of snow, he said why while a small tear grew and grew in his eye, and dropped down, which made him break down into tears.
